Nuna & the Fox

Nuna and the fox

A young Inupiaq girl is featured in this new release by Upper One Games.  The game is called Never Alone. In it you can swtich back and forth bewtween Nuna and her arctic fox.

It is said that it was created based on an initiative by Cook Inlet Tribal Council in Anchorage.  I hope that this means that there are more games to come. Alaska Natives and other Native Americans are woefully absent from most forms of media.

I believe that seeing positive representations of our culture in media is necessary to maintain the interests of the growing generations.  You either adapt or risk being forgotten.
